    • Royal Canadian Mounted Police

      Vancouver 15 hours ago

      For many years I've wanted to see the Royal Canadian Mounted Police show and I note that they are preforming at the Rotary Club of Kamloops Aurora Centennial and at the Victoria Military Music Society in August. I've googled both of these organisations about the details with zero success. Does anyone please have any info about these events. Many thanks

    • Weather April/May

      Quebec Jan 6, 2017 at 12:21 PM

      To those of you who have helped and advised with the NZ trip I'm grateful but we simply can't afford it - so we're heading back to Canada

      Our rough proposed plan is to fly into Boston drive up through Lake Placid and on to Montreal/Ottawa/Quebec City -not sure if it's worth visiting Halifax so might well come back a more direct route. Thinking of visiting April/May but what about snowfall? All suggestions much appreciated - not into outdoor activities but very much folk music and historic sites - we've done Niagra

      Also on my want to do list is to see the Canadian Mounted Police show - I'm visiting their website daily but from past experience is there liable to be a show in Ottawa at this time of year

      We have the chance to visit from London during 1st week in Feb. Probably not the best time to visit but its all we have. Will there be enough for us to do/see? Will we be able to drive around (Whistler?) or will the weather make that impossible? Grateful for your thoughts.

      I remember seeing that there is a glass bridge in either Jasper or Banif, but I can't recall the details. I had not paid much attention as I did not intend on going that way any time soon, but now I will be going to both this summer and am wondering where it is. Thanks

      It might be a good idea to delete your personal picture, eg, face from your profile and any personal information as who knows what will be done with the information once VT is no longer active. Think of doing this from a security aspect.

    • Northern Lights

      by RJF Online Now Nov 14, 2004 at 10:04 AM

      What are the chances of seeing the Northern Lights around December 21 and 22 this year. Does anyone know of any tours that do Northern Lights viewing that a family can join for a night or two from Fort MacMurry. All the tours we have been able to find out about, flew people in and out. My wife and children are keen enought to take the chance on seeing the Northern Lights that we used free leg of our trip to get to Fort MacMurrey, just incase. Still even if the Lights are not on, Having never been in snow before, it should still be interesting. Any suggestions on clothing?. We come from the Central Alustralia, it gets to dry -2C in winter. A warm winter day in your area it would seem from the weather reports. Thanks for any help.
